Fukui region - 130mm Ko-Bunka - knife blade by Masakage
Stainless steel blackened from the blacksmith’s forge is clad in a core of premium carbon steel - Aogami Super (AS). The exposed cutting edge of AS steel has even better edge retention than the best stainless steels and regular white/blue carbon steels.
If you've never owned a carbon steel knife, this blade will impress. While knives made entirely of carbon steel need regular maintenance to keep them rust and stain free, our black forged knives are easy to take care of due to their stainless steel cladding. See care instructions below.
For the Chef's Armoury Bespoke range we wanted to give our customers something really special. Handcrafted, hammer forged blades from top artisans that Australia has never seen before. These blades really excel in looks, performance and feel and we really hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
